My father in law attended a recent high school game and sat next to a college scout. He was an area scout for a scouting service. He was watching Kevin Mann from Jackson Center, which is a small division IV school in Shelby county. After a stellar Sophomore year last year, he followed it up with a great Junior year. He has led to Jackson Center to their second consecutive District championship. Last year he threw a no hitter striking out 14 in the District championship, this year he is pitching with some back spasms and was less effective. He pitches again on Friday against New Bremen, in the Regional semi. He is a 6-1 lefty, with a fastball that sits around 87 mph. This years stats 10-1 0.86 ERA 126K 73IP 14R 9ER 44BB. Recently named Greater Miami Valley Player of the Year.

Another is Devon Torrence, he is a sophomore two way star he has led Canton South into the regional in baseball. He hit around .550 for the season, with 11 home runs and a slugging % over 1.000. An awesome base stealer and great center fielder. Apparently a standout wide reciever and running back as well. Apparently the Yankees have been in contact with him already.
